Dejounte Murray and Paolo Banchero have been going back and forth on Instagram after the Atlanta Hawks star made the No. 1 overall pick look silly during the Zeke-End pro-am basketball tournament in Washington on Sunday.
Murray posted the video himself, welcoming the rookie to the NBA.
“WELCOME TO THE BIG LEAGUES!!!!!!” Murray wrote. “Disrespectful They Said….. Yeahhhhh I KNOW!!!!!!!!”
Even Trae Young was blown away by his new teammate’s impressive mood.
After the clip of Murray faking out Banchero and then throwing himself an alley-oop for a dunk went viral, Banchero seemed to imply that Murray unfollowed him on Instagram.
Banchero accused Murray of unfollowing him on Instagram as well avoiding one-on-one coverage. Murray clearly caught wind of Banchero’s IG post and responded in kind,
Despite calling Banchero out in the post, Murray concluded it by wishing him the best if luck this season. We never thought Hawks vs. Magic would be appointment viewing next season but here we are.
